Default Project Gray Ghost 0r Project Old Pfart

Well I have no idea why an old gray haired pfart like me is starting something like this but as Shelby says: "Here we Gooooo !"



And the best part of the clean little car:



Rear hatch came from salvage yard in Austin.

The real project:



B230FT motor going into a 90 245, head dizzy removed and plugged, old motor yanked and this one dropped in. Needed to pull aux shaft for one with dizzy gear so off came all the front of the engine and discovered this:



Got the broken roll pin out and a new one installed and everything I had to take off the get the new aux shaft in cleaned up ready to go back in.





Got it all back together and a new timing belt on, and boy, Having to line up three timing marks on a 200 is a lot more difficult than lining up 2 on a 700. Especially if all you've ever done are 700 cars.

Lots done and lots left to go.

This engine has nothing more than an 16T turbo right now. Came out of a friends car that just recently got hit a bad lick so the decision was made to yank the engine/trans and transplant it into a 90 245 that had a B230F motor and AW70 trans.

Car is extremely clean (at least compared to the ones I've seen down here) and the plain is to take most of the performance items from my 745 and transplant them to this car.

I just wish I had been given a shot at cleaning the engine and engine compartment before the motor got dropped in. Oh well, not far from getting it running and then I can back it out and hit it with the pressure washer.

OK, small update.



Dizzy aux shaft in and cover on with new seals for the shaft and the crank.

Time for the T-belt and those cleaned up gears.



Don't laugh, it works.

Balancer on, all the makes lined up and lower T-belt cover in-place.



Not a lot of progress, but it's getting there. Oh, and the block mounted dizzy it stabbed.
